    Those are called natural obsticals (SP) ....

    Now, I know we each have our opinions about quad riders and I've seen the 1% of those and the damage they do.
    Yet, I've also seen the 1% of the MC do damage as well.

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not a quad huger or hater...

    Yet, get to know them and what their needs are and you'll find they have some of the same issues we have with their 1%'s (4x4) as we do with theirs...

    Can't we all just play nice in the sand box...

    Ok, I'm off my soap box...

    Thanks again for the great response(s).
    Sorry, can't help with the smoking benches, hand rails, escalators, or vendors....

    I invite any one of you guys to show me how its done on a KLR through that trail.:deal:D
    I'm gonna try and ride down and help out. I've got a breakfast in the morning and I have to be in Bloomington by 4. Probably around noonish if you guys will still be at it.

    Oh, PBR is god's gift to man!:freaky

    I got both MC and quads.

    I will never go on a MC only trail with the quad and hate the quads that just tear up the trail for the hell of it.

    Don't know why they just sit in a hole and gun it and spin all the way thru.

    When we were at Interlake, I hit a horse and MC trail and it was so tore up I couldn't even get the bike thru and had to turn around after I tore off the taillamp.

    And just for that reason I don't know why the state is dragging there feet on getting Interlake setup like Redbird,before it gets destroyed and shut down.

    As far as I know it is still a free for all down there.

    It was when I was down there with RK.

    Interlake is where Redbird was 5yrs ago, yet Interlake is a multi-use park, meaning the non-for-profit is having a hard time getting everyone in line and on the same page.

    If you're interested in helping Interlake move, call the DNR and ask what you can do to help.

    I know they love hearing from me....LOL....
